FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard has been arrested on a domestic battery charge following an argument with his fiancé.

Police in Davie, Fla., said in an arrest report that the woman was injured as the couple argued over the purchase of a purse.

The report says Howard pushed her against a mirror in the hallway of their bedroom and let her go.

She fell to the floor, landing on his crutches.

Howard spent much of the 2019 season injured reserved due to a knee injury.

He did not travel with the team to New England for Sunday's game.

Howard played at Baylor from 2012 to 2015, chalking up 98 tackles, 10 interceptions, 1.5 sacks and a touchdown.
He declared for the 2016 NFL draft after his junior year and the Dolphins selected him in the second round.
